ERADIS - EUROPEAN RAILWAY AGENCY DATABASE OF INTEROPERABILITY AND SAFETY

Accident Investigation notification and reports Database

Articles 19-25 of the Safety Directive outline the requirements for the investigation and reporting of accidents and incidents on the railway. Member States are required to notify ERA of accident investigations and to submit copies of the accident investigation report when complete. The responsibility for this activity lies with an Independent Investigation body within each of the Member States. The reports received are published by ERA.

Some investigation bodies investigate and chose to report to ERA a much wider range of incidents and accidents than those required by the Safety Directive with a view to sharing lessons learned from accidents at a European level. ERA encourages such reporting.

Consequently the following reports are not intended for statistical use but for information on the causal factors in accidents and on the recommendations issued to the National Safety Authorities.

Common approaches to the investigation and reporting of accidents are facilitated through the Network of National Investigation Bodies. Information on the activities of this Network can be found on the ERA web pages.

Since July 2012 the investigation notification and reports data have been reported and can be accessed through the ERAIL database, which is hosted at the following address: http://erail.era.europa.eu/
